Can you look at your suction cup and make sure it is clean and free of any dirt or anything?
It's happened 3 times this summer and I believe a couple of times last year - for both situations last summer, the thing basically broke off like what richie_redbull showed in his post. They were replaced by ESCORT promptly. I have 4 iXcs on 4 different vehicles and the majority of the time, they stick. It has happened only when car is outside. The first occurrence this summer, the car was outside, windshield facing sun. Second occurrence, car was outside, under tree (so some shade) but outside temps were high. What puzzles me though is that the one on my wife's car, X5 does not do this - she has the car out in sweltering heat all day when at work. I have a sedan - so would height matter, besides heat?

Yes I have. Cable management - yes, it's not that big a deal, but I can't get over having to actually route cables.
